A former student of mine makes these to-die-for tamales. Quite honestly, I wasn’t much of a tamale fan until I tried hers. I like to purchase a dozen or two at a time, especially if I am bringing them somewhere to share.
Although the tamales are quite delicious by themselves, I like to eat mine with sour cream to balance out the spice. Unfortunately, most of the standard grocery-store sour cream options are not clean ones. What a bummer! Luckily however, there are a few good options out there. I always suggest if you can buy organic, go for it. If you aren’t able to find any organic options at your local store, no worries, there are other good all-natural options out there as well.
Here are my suggestions for organic and all-natural sour cream options:
Best Organic Options:
1. Kalona SuperNatural Organic – my personal favorite!
2. Organic Valley
3. Horizon Organic
4. Nancy’s Organic Cultured
Best All-Natural Options:
Let’s do a comparison:
Kemps Cultured Sour Cream Ingredients: Skim Milk, Cream, Corn Starch-Modified, Guar Gum, Sodium Phosphate, Carrageenan, Sodium Citrate, Locust Bean Gum, Cultures, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative)
Daisy Sour Cream Ingredients: Grade A cultured cream
Hmm…why all the extra ingredients?
Hooray for all-natural sour cream!
